US-based premium packaging and labelling firm Brook + Whittle has entered an agreement to acquire Laser and Label Technology (LLT Labels).
Based in Stow, Ohio, LLT Labels provides ‘high-performing’ and ‘cost-effective’ labelling solutions for businesses of all sizes.
The company’s experience team offers products such as custom direct thermal labels, thermal transfer labels, thermal transfer ribbons, industrial labels and other custom labels.
The acquisition is intended to help Brook + Whittle expand its range of customer product offerings.
Following the deal, Brook + Whittle will operate 17 production facilities and serve more than 40,000 customers.
The company’s workforce will also increase to more than 1,800 people.
The two companies have not disclosed the financial terms of the deal.
Brook + Whittle executive vice-president Andy Johnson said: “The addition of LLT Labels will strengthen our platform and deliver value for our customers.
“LLT Labels is known for their exceptional customer service, focus on print quality and talented workforce.
“Furthermore, the custom label products that LLT Labels produces will expand Brook + Whittle’s product offering, particularly in the custom warehouse and shipping label category.”
Brook + Whittle provides pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves, heat transfer labels and flexible packaging, operating 17 production facilities across the US.
The company focuses on sustainable packaging, complex decoration, digitalisation and ‘industry-leading’ lead-times.
In May last year, it acquired Diamond Flexible Packaging, a flexible packaging firm based in Northbrook, Illinois.
Diamond supplies customised printed bags and pouches for a broad range of end markets, including food, cosmetics, nutrition, beverage and healthcare.
The acquisition was intended to enhance Brook + Whittle’s wide web printing capabilities and fuel the company’s growth in its main strategic markets.
It came after Brook + Whittle acquired custom label manufacturer Paradigm Label in January last year.
Based in Mira Loma, California, Paradigm Label focuses on supplying flexible packaging, pressure-sensitive labels and shrink sleeves.
